Baseline Grid

Like QuarkXPress, the baseline grid is used to align the baseline of text across multiple columns on a page or spread. Alignment is a paragraph attribute, and you can force text to align to the baseline grid in by clicking the Lock to Baseline Grid button in the Paragraph palette.

The starting point of the baseline grid, how frequently it is repeated and at what view percentage it become visible or hidden are defined by settings in the Grids Preferences dialog box (Figure 36-1). InDesign provides two additional options over XPress: grid color and view threshold. These options work the same way as they do for ruler guides (see Chapter 34).
